Ilan Pappe confirms what we learnt from events at SOAS: the ‘institutional’ boycott is really an exclusion of Israeli academics

“I think what’s really important,” says Pappe, diplomatically, “is that
a growing number of individual academics feel they can no longer
tolerate co-operating with their Israeli counterparts, except for those
who oppose current government policies.”

He also supports, therefore, a political test for Israelis before they are allowed to be part of the global academic community.
